Building a business

It’s not unusual for guests on Girls Around Town to be talking about making major changes in their lives, especially on the work front.

Someone who recently made such a change is Nottingham-based chartered architectural technologist Aimie Crossland-Rimmington, who’ll be on the phone to the Radio Newark studio in the second hour of this weekend’s show to describe why and how she did just that!

After many years’ experience working on commercial and residential projects, following the birth of her first longed-for daughter she soon realised that returning to a similar job in the construction industry while spending time with her baby was going to be difficult to manage.

Having taken the decision to set up her own building and design consultancy company, working on a range of projects from new builds and extensions to renovation work and loft conversions, she’ll be explaining what it’s been like starting her own business.

And the challenges she’s faced doing so in a male-dominated profession!

Make sure you’re tuned in to 107.8FM or listening online just after 11.20am on Sunday when Aimie will be telling June – and you – how she’s risen to those challenges and is well on the way to building that new business…

How to reset your monkey mind

Are you looking for a way to reset your monkey mind?

She’ll be on the phone to the studio next weekend to explain all – just what a monkey mind is, how to reset it and how doing so will let you reset not just your business but your life too.

Therapist and coach Ros will be chatting to June in the second hour of the show and, after a quick update about life on a Lincolnshire farm, she’ll be sharing details of the brand new Monkey Business podcasts she’ll be launching on Thursday 21 January.

Perfect timing don’t you think, just a few days before she’s on air?

A chance to get crafty

What do owl carvings and cupcake toppers, bentwood chairs and felt bowls all have in common?

They’re just a handful of the workshops on the Rural Antics spring programme, as you’ll find out when Amanda Stone’s on the phone to June during this weekend’s show.

With a wide range of arts and crafts on offer right through till the end of May, there’s every chance you’ll find something there to spark your interest!

The published programme may not go ahead exactly as and when planned, with another national lockdown currently in place, but it’s still worth taking a look at what’s on the list – any of the workshops that have to be postponed will be rescheduled as soon as it’s safe to do so and all bookings made will be transferred to the new dates.

Tune in to 107.8FM or listen online from 11.20am on Sunday to hear more from Amanda, who’ll be taking a look back too at how the team and the tutors adapted to all the different restrictions during 2020

And how they’ll be putting what they learned over the last few months to good use when things are up and running once more!
